Starlin Castro out 7-10 days with hamstring injury

Starlin Castro left Sunday’s game with a hamstring injury and the Cubs shortstop is expected to miss 7-10 days after being diagnosed with a “mild” strain, the team announced.

Manager Rick Renteria told Carrie Muskat of MLB.com that “it shouldn’t set him back for the regular season,” but realistically any multi-week injury at this point puts a player in jeopardy of missing Opening Day.

Utility man Emilio Bonifacio and starting second baseman Darwin Barney will see more action at shortstop in the meantime.
